Could Enyinnaya have shared this as palliative to Abians? was the first thing that came to my mind when I first came accross this well packaged garri with his sticker boldly on it.
Should I rather, take this as a move from opposition political party?
No! I has not gotten to this, though we’ve seen much worst but who would expect it in “God’s Own State”. A land where people dash garri and feel nothing. Where cassava and original red oil can be found in abundant.
So someone pushed this photo to me on Tuesday and said, this is what Enyinnaya for the people of Abia state. I couldn’t believe my eyes. But then he who ask questions barely gets lost as well as he who surfs the internet.
Then I found a news on Vanguard dated Monday, April 13th, 2020 and it looked like those ‘let them know we did something’ kind of content.
The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji MNSE, today distributed relief materials to the less privileged in his constituency and beyond to alleviate the effects of the lockdown being observed in the state as a way of preventing and controlling the coronavirus pandemic.
In a brief address to the benefitting institutions, the Speaker who was represented by the Clerk of Abia State House of Assembly, Sir JohnPedro Irokansi, urged them to ensure that the relief materials got to the needy in their midst.
Institutions that benefitted from the palliative materials with the mandate to reach the indigents are close to 70 churches, mosques, the Abia State Specialist Hospital and Diagnostic Centre, Amacahara, Federal Medical Centre Chapel, Umuahia, St Vincent De Paul Centre for the Mentally and Physically Challenged, Umuafai Ndume, School for the Blind, Afara, Agape Charity Home for Children, Ubakala, Motherless Babies Home, Ahiaeke among others.
The Speaker in an earlier statement had expressed confidence in the ability of the religious bodies and charity homes to share the items to reach the needy without considerations for such parochial interests like political party affiliation or favouritism of whatever kind.
He urged all to continue to observe the practices of regular hand washing, social distancing and obey all government directives concerning the fight against coronavirus pandemic, assuring that with the guidelines put in place, the people’s cooperation and God’s grace, the pandemic would soon become a thing of the past.
Now, note two major things missing in this post – the name of materials given and photos of materials given, among others.
This clearly shows that the palliatives were probably for campaign and what was innitially planned or finally got the people who needed it became this
If he really gave, where are the photos?
